Mari had a great 3rd birthday! She had a special snack at school, left early to hang out with Mommy, had her first gymnastics class, dinner at Ruby Tuesdays, presents, and a sleepover with ALL her stuffed animals to finish the day. I'll post more pix after her party on Saturday.
I think Mari summed the day up best - during supper, she leaned over to me and gave me a great big hug and said "I'm so happy to see you, Mommy." And below, a picture is worth a thousand words.

Ahh....another week done. Time seems to be flying by. Here is the last week of our exciting life...some of the pix aren't the most thrilling; I've found myself doing more video snippets than snapshots lately.

It's been a little while since I entered a photo in the I ♥ Faces weekly contest. I'm totally amateur and the amazing photos on there totally
intimidate awe me. But when I saw this theme, I knew the picture I wanted to enter - one of my favorites of all time.
I took this picture just 10 days after returning home from Ethiopia in January 2008. Two weeks prior, Mari and I were sitting in a room in the US Embassy dripping with sweat; I'm sure the temperature in that upper room packed with people was well over 100 degrees. A few days later we flew home to Mari's first brisk, cold winter.

Did a little better this week with pictures!
Mari had some rough days at school and on this day she literally cried from the time I picked her up until she went to bed...it broke my heart.

Okay....so I missed a couple days of pictures this week. Just too stinking busy! But not with anything exciting enough to whip out the camera. Too sad. But I'm determined to put up a picture a day and I promise I will not let it (cheating) happen again. Yeah, right!
Told Mari it was bedtime. She was not happy. Put on my sneakers and decided to take Abby and her groceries to Grandma's house.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know I'm a couple weeks behind. Sigh. Get over it. We've had some busy weeks and the next few will be busy too. And hopefully more exciting than what these pix make our lives out to be!
Love the hair, Love the shirt, LOVE THIS KID!
But when did she grow up?
2 hours of hair time, 1 beader, 120 beads, dozens of failed hair snaps, dozens of black rubber bands, hundreds of mommy tears.
1 gasp of "Mommy, Mommy, look at my beads!!!!"
I'll do it all over again.
Trying to keep someone occupied by challenging her more. Dumped all her puzzles and told her to put them together. Kept her busy for 20 minutes but she was unimpressed.
